Licensing Eggplant Functional

Each Eggplant Functional virtual user (VU) uses an instance of Eggplant Functional to communicate with the system under test (SUT). The Eggplant Performance injector will automatically start an instance of Eggplant Functional per VU, so each injector machine must have a copy of Eggplant Functional installed and licensed.

There is a helpful tool to make licensing multiple copies of Eggplant Functional easy.

Note: This tool only needs to be run once for each injector on which there is an unlicensed copy of Eggplant Functional.  Once Eggplant Functional has been licensed, the injector can run Eggplant VU s during tests.
Note: See Using Eggplant Functional Floating Licenses with Eggplant Performance for information about to use floating licenses for Eggplant Functional with Eggplant Performance.
  1. On the Help menu, click Apply Eggplant Functional licenses.
  2. The Apply Eggplant Functional licenses window opens:

    This enables you to apply a license to multiple copies of Eggplant Functional, installed on injector machines.

  3. Enter the Eggplant Functional username and license key.
  4. Select one or more injectors in the list, and then click OK.
Important: Make sure that the Eggplant Performance Injector software is running on the selected injectors, and that Eggplant Functional is not running.

Using Eggplant Functional Floating Licenses with Eggplant Performance

If you are using floating licenses with Eggplant Functional, the injector must tell Eggdrive where the licensing server is every time a test runs. In this case, you need to configure the location of the floating license server in the injector family properties as follows:

  1. Select the injector family you want in the Workspace tree of Eggplant Performance Studio. This displays information about the injector family in the main window.
  2. Display the Advanced Settings tab, and then the Eggplant Functional tab, and enter the hostname or IP address of the Eggplant Functional floating license server location in the Eggplant Functional License Host field shown highlighted below:
